Batweoman by J. H. Williams III

His work is incredible, and I liken it to that of J. G. Jones, who I've mentioned in my posts on Grant Morrison's FINAL CRISIS. The electric look to the pages of Batwoman is vastly different than the more subdued pages, with lightened tones,of Kate Kane in her private life, whether it is drinking as a socialite, being outed from the military, or her days with Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya. Take a look.

Nice artwork. However, I've grown weary of "real life" issues within the pages of superhero comic books. Superheroes were created for children. It's a silly concept and should remain silly. The revisionist superheroes begun by the likes of Denny O'Neil (Green Lantern/Green Arrow), and later copied by Roy Thomas, Alan Moore, and Frank Miller have become rather creepy. Enough. Superhero comics need to be just plain old silly again. For kids. The way that they were intended.
